Stuck in the mud: Ghana stays in 35th

Ghana stayed in 35th place of the latest Fifa world ranking release on Wednesday for the month of August.

The Black Stars are still the continent's sixth best behind Ivory Coast, Cameroun, Gabon, Egypt and Nigeria.

Ghana will play Zambia in an international friendly on 12 August and Sudan on 6 September in a joint Nations Cup/World Cup qualifier in Accra.

Almost the entire top 20 of the latest edition of the Fifa world ranking remains unchanged.

Brazil, who returned to the top in July, are still the leaders ahead of Spain and the Netherlands.

Behind them are Italy who have lost more points than Germany following the devaluation of previous matches and have therefore been overtaken by them.
